  • That is a bad entry in the food database. The database is user-sourced, so there are A LOT of incorrect entries. The brand of banana doesn't matter, so just look up a generic banana instead of using the brand name. Ideally, you should weigh the edible portion and find an entry that lets you log it in grams. But, if you are…
  • I'm seeing anywhere from 65-70mg per 12oz can of A&W. I guess if you're drinking A LOT of it, it might add up.
  • I am wondering this, too. Coke Zero has 40 mg of sodium in a 12oz can. Almost half of that is just from the water that it contains (water has sodium). That's a really low amount...maybe other sodas have more? I'm not sure.
  • I recently had my first doctor's appointment in over two years. I was wondering if she was going to "yell" at me about missing last year's physical, but instead, the first thing she said was "I'm so glad you maintained your weight!" She said most of her returning patients that she hadn't seen in a while had put on some…
  • AGAIN....it is 60-95% effective at preventing you from getting Covid. Everyone knows that is not 100%.
  • When I was in elementary school, there was a lunch room monitor (one of the teachers) that made sure you ate everything in your lunch. She would check to make sure you were not throwing out any food. One day, I got caught trying to throw out part of my sandwich. The teacher made me go to her classroom and look at photos of…
  • I drink a few Coke Zeros every week because I like them and they are 0 calories. I have no concerns about artificial sweeteners...I've never seen a human study that shows there's anything problematic...just rat studies. So, no, there's really no "good" reasons, just a lot of scare tactics about "Chemi-KILLZ!"
  • The vaccines are anywhere from 60-95% effective at preventing you from getting the virus/testing positive. So, yes, it does significantly protect you from getting the virus in the first place. But, if you DO get the virus, it will all but eliminate the chances of you getting seriously ill. Those are two separate sets of…
  • Keeps you from being hospitalized or dying though.
  • To be honest, I do not enjoy being outside in areas with a lot of people, traffic, pollution, trash, noise, crime, etc. I walk a lot, but it's not really an efficient form of exercise for me. That's why I said I personally would be more active if I lived in a more rural place, with peaceful natural areas that would…
  • I stopped by Binny's yesterday (large liquor store). I don't typically shop there, so I hadn't been there in quite a while. Their sign said "Unvaccinated: must wear masks, vaccinated: masks not required, but highly encouraged". Because of the "highly encouraged" part, I put my mask on to enter. I was the only one wearing…
  • Nah. Except for nicotine, I consumed all of these substances while losing weight, improving my physical fitness, and lowering my cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure. "Making it easy" is eating what you like in moderation, while paying attention to calories and general nutrition. What you're suggesting is the…
  • This does get silly sometimes...a few years ago, I visited a state fair with my parents. There was a craft beer tent that had a 21+ requirement to enter. Everyone had to show ID. My 70-year-old mother did not bring her ID with her, and they wouldn't let her in.
  • How about when people feel the need to post even if they can't contribute anything to the discussion: OP: "What's the best way to cook beets?" Responses: "I hate beets." OR "I've never had beets." Then WHY are you responding?? They didn't PM you with this question...just move on.
  • My husband used to sell and service commercial ice machines. He told me that when he'd go out on service calls, he was often shocked at the number of restaurants that were not properly cleaning their machines. He'd open them up to find mold and mildew in the water lines that fed the machine. He would re-train the owners on…
  • Your weight will ALWAYS fluctuate. This is normal and in general not something you should strive to avoid. Your body weight is made up of more than muscle and fat and bones. It includes an ever-changing amount of water, food waste, fluids, etc. Weighing every day can help you to understand the fluctuations and not let them…
  • You never sniffed glue as a kid? :p
  • Complain all you want. Someone always has it worse than you, but that never stopped me from complaining! :D Your goals are only delayed...you'll get there when the time is right. Any new goals you can add to this year's list that would be do-able? You are lucky that you live close enough that you can make last-minute…
  • You didn't fail. Climate change failed you.
  • Yes, that's the part I don't get either. Vegetables are a huge class of foods, with all different tastes and textures. Preparing them different ways multiplies the variety of tastes and textures. How can you not like ALL of them? They are all so different. I honestly think that at some point, people just got it in their…
  • That’s cause those college kids don’t eat the cheese and brats. :D They must run off the beer, though.
  • Oh yeah, in Wisconsin, bars outnumber grocery stores 3-to-1. Add in the cheese and bratwurst, and it's probably not the healthiest of states. We love to vacation there, though...there's some beautiful areas...just stay off the roads on a Saturday night. That said, I think I'd be healthier if I lived in Wisconsin...I enjoy…
  • If you logged the steak raw, then the juices and fat were already counted, so you don't need to count them twice.
  • I think another factor is stress level/mood. With my husband, if he is very stressed or angry about something, then it's way more likely his stomach will blow up if he eats one thing on his "no" list. He just commented about how when we were on vacation, his stomach didn't bother him, even though he ate some things that…
  • YES. What's funny is it's not the amount of meat that bothers me...I like a thick, juicy burger patty. But I don't like 2 skinny patties. Maybe it's because the thinner they are, the more they are guaranteed to be overcooked and tasteless.
  • I need to color my hair so I get carded again. Since COVID, I've let the grey come though and haven't been carded once. When I did get occasionally carded, I found that what I was buying influenced whether or not I got carded. A nice bottle of red wine along with expensive steaks in my grocery basket, never carded.…
  • My husband is an independent contractor, and my company sometimes hires him to do a job. When he works for us, I'm his supervisor and I need to tell him what to do and let him know if he's doing something wrong. It's funny because we have never had any issues with it, but for some reason, everyone around us gets all…
  • RE: Requiring proof of vaccination... At my workplace, we can go without a mask if we are vaccinated. It's not just the honor system, though. We were asked to upload a photo of our vaccination card to an app, which then provides you with a "vaccine pass" on your phone. We have to show the pass to security upon entering the…
  • You need to focus Not on the number of likes But on disagrees.
  • That's just the ocean's way of telling you that you don't belong there. :p
